Raya Martin-Mark Peranson film in NY Times
Raya Martin and Mark Peranson’s “La Última Película,” currently showing at Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center in New York, was named the New York Times’ Critics’ Pick in an article published on Jan. 9. In his review, critic Andy Webster described the film, a tribute and critique of Dennis Hopper’s “The Last Movie,” as a “goofy, dazzling riff.” Webster lauded Martin and Peranson’s “exuberant, often lyrical imagery … blithe humor,” adding, “Mr. Hopper, onetime enfant terrible, would be pleased.”
The Film Society of the Lincoln Center website pointed out: “Martin and Peranson have created an unclassifiable work that mirrors the contortions and leaps of the medium’s history and present.” “La Última Película” screenings will end tomorrow. Bayani San Diego Jr.
